Business attire should be well-fitted, not too tight or too baggy. You want to be comfortable in what you are wearing so you can project confidence.
For men: A well-tailored, two-piece suit in a conservative color is most appropriate. Be sure that the shirt and suit are pressed or ironed. A variety of ties may be worn, but muted colors in solid, stripes, or small patterns are preferred. Khaki pants and a blazer are not considered business attire. Men should wear dress shoes in black or brown. Accessories should be limited. Hairstyles should be professionally maintained and facial hair should be trimmed and neatly groomed. Go light on or avoid cologne altogether.
For women: A well-tailored pant or skirt suit in a conservative color is most appropriate. If wearing a skirt, the length of the skirt should be comfortable and appropriate while you are sitting down. Blouses or collared shirts should not have a low-cut neckline. Accessories should be limited and hairstyles should be professionally maintained. Go light on or avoid perfume altogether. Shoes should be professional and conservative. They can either be professional flats or heels, but heels should be no higher than 2-3 inches.
Important notes for Orientation: The lawyers at the legal offices we are visiting during Orientation may be dressed in attire that is more casual than business attire. When making a first impression, however, it is always better to err on the side of formality. For employer visits on Friday, some walking may be required. Women can change out of their professional shoes into a more comfortable pair for walking. If you are bringing a bag to accommodate for this, make sure it is a professional tote. You can wear the same suit on Friday that you wore to the Welcome Program on Wednesday evening.
